AI Tools You Can Use Now

The world is evolving right before our eyes. As a long-time Star Trek nerd, I'm thrilled to witness this evolution in real-time.

The realm of AI, once a futuristic fantasy, has turned into a reality. Where the once unimaginable is now possible. Artificial intelligence has transitioned from a futuristic concept to a practical, accessible tool. A tool that is reshaping our daily lives.

In this post, I'll share some of my favorite AI tools.

Perplexity: A Better Google

When faced with a question our reflex is to turn to Google. Often we find ourselves sifting through a never ending number of links to find our answer.

Perplexity has created a better way. Imagine asking a question and receiving a direct, concise answer along with the source link. That's the genius behind Perplexity. It's completely changed how I ask questions. I rarely use Google anymore.

Lindy: An AI Employee

What if you could describe a task using natural language and have it completed? That's expected when working with virtual assistants, but what about with AI? Lindy is on the brink of making this a reality.

By describing what you need, a new "Lindy" is created to complete that task tailored to your request. In fact, it adapts itself based on feedback from you.

What's possible with Lindy today is incredible, but I can only dream of what will be possible in another 6-12 months. The team behind Lindy is incredibly talented.

Mindy: An AI Chief of Staff

Mindy is a recent discovery of mine and it's quickly gaining my attention. With a simple email to Mindy (m@mindy.com) with your request, it quickly jumps to action.

My personal first test was finding a restaurant in Miami and adding the details to my calendar. This test went perfectly—it actually blew my mind.

While calling Mindy a "Chief of Staff" is a large leap, it's still a useful tool that's free. Similar to Lindy, it's cool now, but imagine if they actually built an AI Chief of Staff....

Rabbit R1: AI in Your Pocket

The Rabbit R1 is the only device I've ever felt compelled to pre-order, and with good reason.

This device combines a Large Language Model (LLM) with a Large Action Model (LAM), which they created. A Large Action Model is like a Large Language Model, but it's trained to use any software it's trained on.

A good way to think about this is that an LLM can understand what you want, but an LAM can actually do it.

While it's an incredible physical device, I see this evolving into a software that runs on any computer. This would make the movie Her possible—being able to complete work by talking to your computer.

Wrapping it up

These tools are just the tip of the iceberg. Things that are coming fast are AI software engineers by Cognition and humanoid robots by Figure. As things become more accessible, we're make sure to share these tools with our users. We'll ensure you stay on the cutting-edge of this ever evolving world.
